The services and sacrifices of the police department in KP are obvious to all. These people have always laid down their lives for the motherland. Because of these services they have earned a name. If we talk about the police force in Mardan, it is evident that policemen in this region have never deviated from performing their duty. According to information from District police, since 1972 till date, 106 policemen have sacrificed their lives including two DSPs, two inspectors, 11 sub inspectors, 13 ASIs, 13 head constables and 65 constables. Abdus Salam is an ASI who father Jababr khan was an SHO and was shot while raiding a house,
In 1990 my father was martyred during a raid while serving as an SHO in Mardan. I was very young at that time. Our senior officers knew him well and pay us great respect due to our father. He had served the department and nation well.
After the death of his father, not only Abdus Salam joined police but his younger brother also joined police force as an ASI in lieu of special quota,
He was appointed as an ASI. He was serving in Swabi and got promoted to serve in Nowshera. In 2012 he was injured during a terrorist attack. He has lost his one ahnd but still he is serving with spirit in Kohat.
Abdus Salam is still highly spirited and such incidents have not demoralized him,
Now a day we have great challenges for police. My father died and my brother got crippled but still we are ready to serve the country well.
Noor Ul Amin is a head constable whose brothers are retired from police now has joined police with the same spirit,
Since those days when we raided in boats and swam to participate in a rescue operation, I wanted to serve the people
Not only he served in rescue operation but also did well when a suicidal attack was faced judicial courts in Mardan,
When the hand grenade was hurled, there was a huge blast. There was a riot and I got down from my vehicle. There was another blast. I counted my bullets and found that I have fired 16 of them. I thought that public may be the target and maybe there is another blast when people got assembled. I did according to my training.
When Noor was asked about the situation when terrorist are confronted then he says that love of land surpasses everything,
When spirit is there then family and other relations are put aside. We have taken vow to serve the nation and we stand by it in such situations. We do not bother about anything else and fight.
